Coming Soon!

In an upcoming issue of the fabulous magazine Social South, one of designer Elizabeth Gullett's projects will be featured! It was photographed over the weekend in Santa Rosa Beach by the talented Allison Muirhead. The home is filled with natural light, blues and whites, linens and other soft fabrics, and just a relaxed yet elegant feel.

It's going to be a beautiful spread, so keep your eyes peeled!

Outdoor Oasis

Designer Todd Prince and his lovely assistant Tina had quite a busy week last week! They had two major installs, both of which we're excited to tell you about! One was interior and one was exterior, so today we're sharing the exterior one! With the lovely weather we had over the weekend, it just seems appropriate to keep up the spirit of outdoor entertaining...

This beautiful outdoor oasis is open, breezy, and (of course) weather proof! Todd picked all of the furniture from a couple of our favorite outdoor lines: Lee Industries and Summer Classics. It all blends together so perfectly!

All of the custom detail (like the custom banding on the bottom of the dining chairs, and the specially made drapery hardware) make this space interesting and personal as well as beautiful.

Gorgeous outdoor fabrics from Perennials (notice the contrast fabrics on the white arm chairs!), Nomi, Donghia, and Dedar add just the perfect amount of color and texture...

Photo Shoot at a Pretty House

Yesterday, we had a great time at a dear client's beautiful home getting set up for a photo shoot for the Mistletoe Marketplace Steering Committee!

Residence designed by SummerHouse // Ridgeland, MS

Talented photographer Allison Muirhead got some great shots of the fun Junior League gals (and talking to all of them got us excited about Mistletoe Marketplace even though it's not until November!)

While the photo session was going on, we walked around the rest of the house and snapped a few shots of this GORGEOUS home. Here are a few teasers... More photos to come in the very near future!

Tranquil Retreat in Delta Magazine

Our very own Elizabeth Gullett was featured in the latest issue of Delta Magazine! This tranquil retreat out in Brandon has a very beachy feel, specifically designed by Elizabeth to compliment the home's location on the water! When we went out for this shoot, we really did feel like we were on vacation when really we were only minutes from home!

You may remember seeing a few behind-the-scenes shots in this blog post from a few weeks back.

Now, we give you... The actual spread!

Two Days Away!

The big Barry Dixon event is THIS Thursday! Only two days away!
We are so excited to host this one-of-a-kind event alongside Arteriors for such a design celebrity as Barry Dixon!

[caption id="attachment_2353" align="aligncenter" width="550"]Photo © Tony Powell. Barry Dixon Portraits. Elway House. August 23, 2012 Barry Dixon[/caption]

Not only is Barry extremely talented, but he is genuinely one of the nicest people we've had the pleasure of getting to know!
We know you're going to really enjoy talking with him and hearing him share about his design adventures.

In case you haven't heard, Barry is an Ole Miss graduate, so he is calling this event a homecoming of sorts!
He loves his Mississippi friends and has had some really kind words to say about us Mississippians
(and our homes!) :)

“Perhaps the greatest quality a home might possess is that of innate, soulful hospitality,” Barry says. “The South, Mississippi in particular, literally oozes this cardinal quality, and her children take it with them wherever they go…”

Come meet Barry on Thursday night from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. over a bite to eat (prepared by James Beard Award winning Chef Derek Emerson of Walker's and Local 463!) and a Mason Dixon signature cocktail! Raphael Semmes and his trio will also be here providing some groovy tunes to set the mood for the affair!

We look forward to seeing you! Bring your friends!

Welcome To The Jungle

Designer Elizabeth Gullett and her fabulous assistat Patricia Robbins completed the install of a cute little boy's room last week that we are dying to share with you!

Keep in mind, this is only a peek at the room, as the room dweller was very excited about his new hang out space and wasn't in the mood to let us take a whole bunch of pictures!

Elizabeth was told by the boy's parents that they wanted there to be a little bit of a theme in the room, and that it had to be kid friendly (of course!), so Elizabeth went with a loose jungle theme!

It turned out beautifully, and is the perfect combo of little boy + clean, timeless design.

Progress Report: "The Cabin"

We had to stop and take pictures... They were just too adorable!
